    079: On Walter Reuther pt 7 with Cars and Comrades

    079: On Walter Reuther pt 7 with Cars and Comrades

    Part seven (and the last) of our seven-part series on the life and work of Walter Reuther with the Cars and Comrades podcast.

    Patreon content (the first hour before the theme song) left in as a bonus.

    Who was Walter Reuther and why might he be important to leftist car enthusiasts? Walter was a labor organizer who became the President of the United Auto Workers (UAW) as well as the Congress of Industrial Organisations (CIO). Walter had a broad vision for what the labor movement could achieve for working people and he was at the forefront of the labor struggle throughout most of the 20th century. Walter was a Socialist, although he was very much against communism. In this deep dive, we take an honest look at both the successes and failures of Walter's approach to improving the lives of working people.

    For additional context, refer back to our past episodes that touched on The Battle of the Overpass and our series on DRUM: The Dodge Revolutionary Union Movement. There will be several more episodes in this series (at least 6), so buckle up and join us along the road to revolution.

Zip2music ,

Great podcast

Very informative while also being funny and not taking themselves too seriously, I love all the hosts, great discussions one of my go-to podcasts for political theory and history. I love listening to Turn Leftists pod while I drive for work. I hope they keep up the good work because I could listen to this forever.

A more light hearted take on ML thought

Sure there is some theory to satisfy that itch but this is a solid podcast that paints a very human connection too. Very personable and funny at times but still educational and theory driven at its core. Perfect to unwind to while not having to focus 110%.

*chef’s kiss*

That’s it, that’s the review.
